Jobhunting Sites

We are often asked for useful sites when it comes to looking for a job. We have listed below some sites that our members have found useful in their search for jobs.

Evenbreak is the only not-for-profit specialist online job board in the UK run by disabled people for disabled people. They help inclusive employers attract more talented disabled candidates, and help disabled job seekers find work with employers who will value their skills. Employers such as BBC, E.ON, EY (Ernst & Young), ITV, John Lewis, Network Rail, Wellcome Trust and many, many more advertise their roles on Evenbreak in order to access their thousands of talented disabled candidates. If you are an inclusive employer wishing to tap into this amazing pool of talent, or you are a disabled person looking for work, please visit www.evenbreak.co.uk.

Equal Approach is a specialist diversity recruitment provider with a strong focus on attracting candidates from a diverse background. Each week they will be providing a list of their latest positions to the ADP. They also have their vacancies listed on their website at www.equalapproach.com. Equal Approach will be making a donation to those diverse organisations that assist them with promoting vacancies which result in a successful placement. Please ensure you advise Equal Approach that you heard of the vacancies on the ADP website.

Another useful website that incorporates the old jobability information is the totaljobs website. There are links on the site with regard to your rights as a disabled employee, as well as the opportunity to sign up for jobs by email.

If you are a graduate, you may wish to look at the Target Jobs website, which has a specifically designed section for people looking for careers after leaving university.

EmployAbility is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to assisting disabled people into employment. Working primarily with disabled students/graduates, EmployAbility offers support and guidance to ease the transition from education to a career.

Finally, if you are looking for an executive position, you can carry out a global executive job search in various sectors on the Exec-Appointments.com website.
